Super Saiyan: Berserk (超サイヤ人 暴走 Sūpā Saiya-jin Bōsō, lit. Super Saiyan Out of Control)[1] is a corrupted version of the Super Saiyan 2 state.



As Goku was in his Super Saiyan 2 form prior to being corrupted, the form possesses the same appearance as Super Saiyan 2, but with black electric sparks instead of blue in the anime or yellow in the manga and blanked out eyes. His skin also appears much darker.

Usage and power

Goku takes on this form during the Prison Planet Saga, after Cunber's ki affects him. In the anime the form appears to be weaker than Super Saiyan 2 (as Goku is at a disadvantage against Super Saiyan Future Trunks even though Trunks' ki is suppressed by handcuffs).

In the manga, Goku is able to knock down Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta when he is not fighting back - though Goku's blows do not appear to do any actual damage to Vegeta. Base Future Trunks is able to just barely block an attack from Goku in this state, and final form Cooler is able to knock him away by attacking him from behind. Cooler is forced to take on his Golden Cooler form in order to defeat Super Saiyan: Berserk Goku, casually swatting him aside before using his strongest technique against Goku in an attempt to kill him, Goku survives albeit defeated. After being defeated, Goku reverts to normal and notes that he does not remember what happened to him.

In the anime, Super Saiyan Berserk: Goku beats back base Vegeta, but appears slightly outmatched when battling Super Saiyan Future Trunks. Golden Cooler knocks down Super Saiyan: Berserk Goku with a single punch, which frees him from corruption.

Video Game Appearances

Super Saiyan Berserk appears in Super Dragon Ball Heroes, introduced in the second mission of the Universe Mission series (UM2).


  • As in most of Super Saiyan 2 promotional appearances, Super Saiyan Berserk is also drawn with the Super Saiyan form hair.
